Court properly awarded husband to contribute $43,000 toward wife's attorney fees, and properly set his child support obligation, for 4 children, at $4,800 per month, based on determination that his net income was $12,000 per month. Court properly determined husband's net income based on his two finance applications, in higher amounts than his testimony. All relevant circumstances of parties at time of property division are factors to be considered in request for contribution toward attorney fees, not only amount and sources of income with simple formula comparing relative financial situations. Extended time spent with one's children does not require deviation from statutory child support guidelines. (JORGENSEN and ZENOFF, concurring.)
